Cook Children’s Health Care System is partnering with Fort Worth-based Buxton Co. to develop a strategy for expanding hours, locations and services offered at its primary and specialty care clinics, the organization announced Aug. 1.


Fort Worth-based Cook Children’s operates more than 60 primary and specialty care offices in the North Texas region. With a service region that encompasses six counties and an additional referral area encompassing nearly half the state, the organization wants to better understand the location needs of its patient base.


“As Cook Children’s continues to grow, we will focus on optimizing new and existing locations to bring quality health care services closer to our patients,” said Christian Pedigo, assistant vice president of system planning for Cook Children’s. “By utilizing Buxton’s analytics, we gain a greater understanding of not only the best locations for primary care clinics, but also the health care preferences of our patients and their families. We look forward to gaining new insights about our patients and enhancing our delivery of health care services.”
 

Buxton also plans Canadian push

On July 31, Buxton announced it is continuing to focus on international capabilities for its retail clients, by rolling out its full
suite of retail market analyses in the Canadian marketplace. The Canadian retail market has become extremely competitive, with massive retail growth expected over the next few years, according to the company.  As a new concentration for Buxton, the company will put increased efforts on both U.S. retailers expanding into Canada, and Canadian organizations looking to maximize their footprint in the market.
“For 20 years we’ve helped retailers identify who their customers are, and where those customers are located in the U.S.,” said Tom Buxton, founder and CEO of Buxton. “Now our focus will be on identifying those customers in Canada to guide retailers on their
international expansion.”
